Certified Crop Adviser Test Prep Course Offered by ISU Extension


AMES, Iowa – The Iowa State University (ISU) Extension Agribusiness Education Program (AEP) is offering the  Certified Crop Adviser (CCA) Exam Review Session in preparation for the upcoming CCA exam. The two-day review session will be held on Jan. 23-24 at the Memorial Union, on the Iowa State University campus.


The cost of the course is $200 and includes meals, course materials and parking ramp fees. Each participant also receives the latest edition of the Crop Diagnostic Notebook containing nearly 150 Extension publications and crop production references. Class topics will follow the Performance Objectives for Iowa, 2005 document, available on the CCA Web site at http://www.agronomy.org/cca//pdf/obj_ia.pdf Attendees are encouraged to be familiar with this document before attending the class.


Those attending will participate in a testing and study skills session conducted by the ISU Student Success Center. This session is designed to help participants improve their testing abilities, reduce test anxiety and maximize efficiency while studying. At the conclusion of the review sessions a mock CCA examination will be given so students will know what to expect in an actual testing situation. ISU Extension faculty and staff will teach all sessions.


No CCA credits will be offered for this class and attendance is limited to those registered to take the Feb. 3, 2006, CCA exam.


Class enrollment will be limited to the first 40 paid registrations. If the class is full, an announcement will be made on the AEP Web site. Registrations must be received no later than 5 p.m., Thursday, Jan. 19. Pre-registration is required. Registrations may be faxed, mailed or completed online with a credit card.
